but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have had hepatitis b have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

6:37am
work right? >> right. we've got a big task ahead of us and this is going to be a big issue. obviously we know from the fight over the affordable care act that we had a lot of trouble getting the right information out. so people knew what was really going on and what the affordable care act really does. >> stephanie: i was just going to say once again republicans thanks again because they spent so much time demagoguing it and stonewalling it, it has led to this wall of misinformation that now that it survived the supreme court in this election, we have to start getting out the right information so people know what to do. >> right. the problem is that we have to get people enrolled in the plans. get people to understand how they can take part in the healthcare exchanges what they are, how to access them. the problem is we've got to get critical mass, right. we've got to get a lot of people involved so we can keep prices low. so that we can use the power of more and more people, insurance companies will keep their rates -- allegedly will keep the rates lower if they have more people enrolled. the idea is to get people to
6:38am
participate. that's very difficult to do when people don't know what exists so the government has a real kind of p.r. task ahead of it. to try to get the information out. that's tricky. we see this problematic in the healthcare system already things like medicaid where people who are eligible don't know how to participate. >> stephanie: we see people, just yesterday continuing to publicize this, the latest was the governor of oklahoma who said oh, i'm not going to do the exchange because it is going to cost oklahomans too much money. she turned down $40 something million of federal funding for this. >> i think it was like $54 million that would have helped them study how best to set up and implement a state-based exchange. it was grant money that was offered by hhs and it looked like she turned it down. there were two different stories. one that she turned down a chunk of change and another saying they offered the grant. i assume that's the money she had turned down but a lot of the governors are standing on principle. it is the same thing rick scott
6:39am
did with the high-speed rail system in florida. it was like i think it was a couple billion dollars he was offered to build a high-speed rail system. he turned it down on principle. that money goes somewhere else. >> stephanie: this is the problem. i love this part of the story. initial white house effort at outreach caused congressional republicans to use taxpayer money for political gain. >> they've tried to reach out and republicans said it was political during an election year. >> stephanie: educate people about what's in healthcare so they can take advantage of it. it can help people. that's what i mean. we're up against so much intransigence. they were unfamiliar with the new coverage options in the survey, in a new poll. 83% of those likely qualify for the expansion of medicaid, were unaware of that option. so now what? >> the problem is the government has a lot of trouble simplifying this information so people understand it. that's a lot of what we're trying to do here. when we talk about this, we try
6:40am
to make it easy to understand. you know, what i want to do and i think we collectively continue to want to do is to make this as easy as possible for people to not only get it but to be able to share it with their friends and family. maybe we can help plug the holes a little bit. >> stephanie: some people are saying we're going to need a fairly massive p.r. campaign for people to understand this, to take advantage of it in time. >> they did that in massachusetts. they used the red sox as part of a p.r. campaign. they got people to pay attention that way. but yeah, that is what we're going to need. i think people need to understand a couple of things. what's going to happen is each state is going to set up the exchanges which are going to be like market places. i like to describe them as travelocity or expedia. one-stop shop for your travel or compiles all of the possibilities. that's what it is going to be like. on the back end, however, it will figure out whether or not based on your income you qualify for what's called a subsidy which is essentially help paying for the premium. you're still going to pay your premiums but you're going to get
6:41am
help based on how much money you make. the back end of the system will have to figure out who qualifies and who doesn't. that's where some of the infrastructure will be complicated on the state level and the federal level to figure out what kind of subsidies people qualify for. but people -- anybody can shop in the exchange except i think undocumented immigrants are the only people who are excluded from it. but you can shop as an individual on the exchange and if you qualify for a subsidy great. if not you're still able to shop on the exchange and shop and contrast plans. that's fundamentally what's going into place. people need to know that they exist. they need to know how to access them and what to look for. >> stephanie: the subsidies don't begin for another year, right? >> allegedly we're going to start rolling -- enrolling people in 2013 but the exchanges won't be ready, up and running until january 2014 which isn't that far away if you think about it. >> stephanie: do you think that -- again, there is going to be any -- are we just in this post-election tantrumy period
6:42am

>> stephanie: here's a fun fact. kevin says i now understand why mccain has it in for susan rice. from her wikipedia page, she went on leave to serve as senior foreign policy adviser to barack obama in 2008. presidential campaign, rice took a disparaging view of obama's republican opponent in the campaign, john mccain, calling his policies reckless. and dismissing the arizona senator's trip to iraq as strolling around the market in a flack jacket. that's why the angriest little elf is the angriest, bitterest little elf ever. >> a leprechaun, not an elf. >> stephanie: sorry. >> select committee, if appointed, clears her of any wrong doing besides not being very bright because it was obvious that this was not a quote flash mob, there was no demonstration, charlie. there was none there. >> you were there? you saw all of this? >> stephanie: yeah. you know, you thought after the election result, there would be a reality check on the other

[ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] intelligence officials told cnn the intelligence community, not the white house changed the benghazi talking points given to susan rice. what is he -- he does not like the stand on this. director of national intelligence spokesperson said the only changes came from the intelligence community not the white house. as david petraeus just said. he keeps screaming about he's looking for answers. he gets them and he keeps screaming. >> those aren't the answers i want. i need better answers! >> stephanie: the original assessment of the benghazi attack was it was carried out by al-qaeda affiliated groups. he said that analysis was taken out after an interagency review
6:52am
in favor of a more general review that they did not tip off terrorists to u.s. knowledge of the matter. we already covered this. general petraeus and now other intelligence officials are just -- you know, making it even clearer. so let's see. john mccain, lindsey graham, blah blah, have accused the white house of stripping for political reasons. the director of the c.i.a. and now current intelligence officials have said no. intelligence agencies changed it not the white house. i don't understand why we're even talking about this still. let's see. he said the intelligence community made substantial analytical changes with the talking points were sent to the government agency, partners for their feedback. there were no substantive changes made to the talking points after they left the intelligence community. period. another anonymous official echoed him saying they were made based on intelligence and legal purposes. first the individual about the individuals linked to al-qaeda was derived from classified
6:53am
sources. classified. second were so tenuous. they still are. it makes sense to be cautious before pointing fingers so you don't set off a chain of circular and self-reinforcing assumptions. third is it important to not prejudice an investigation in the early stages. representative adam schiff who we just had on yesterday from the house intelligence committee said petraeus was adamant there was no white house interference or political agenda. oh gosh. >> i want to blame it on that one. >> stephanie: the story's media commentators are beginning to wonder why republicans are picking up a substance-free fight with rice, a woman and an african-american. which is why james clyburn and others are saying these are code words. like john sununu calling the president not very bright and lazy. the first debate. again, to say she's not bright, i mean -- >> that's a lie. >> stephanie: yeah. representative james clyburn
6:54am
called this yesterday. accused the congress of using racial code words to undermine susan rice even though they can't hold a canadale to her intellectually. these 97 house republicans said rice is widely viewed as having competently misled -- the c.i.a. says no. these are the talking points. i don't understand why there's any criticism of her at this point. yeah. john mccain said she's not qualified and not very bright as we just played. representative marcia fudge said there is a clear -- >> masha fudge -- >> stephanie: that's her name. that there's clear racism and sexism. clyburn said these are code words. we heard them in the campaign. we heard senator sununu calling our president lazy, incompetent. these kinds of terms that those of us, especially those of us who were born and raised in the south, we've been hearing them all of our lives. we get insulted by them. susan rice is as competent as anyone you can find.
6:55am
to call her incompetent a ph.d., a rhodes scholar from being called incompetent by someone who can't hold a canadale to her intellectually and senator mccain called her incompetent. he told us that sarah palin was a competent person to be vice president of the united states. that would tell. >> little bit about his judgment. thank you, representative clyburn. >> it is personal for him. he's leading all of the republicans in this attack on susan rice because of the personal things -- >> damn clouds! >> stephanie: she's like a cloud he's angry at. honestly, even to say she did somethingerroneously. she didn't. these are the talking points, the intelligence agency says this is what it is. they feel it was unclassified to talk about it at the time. >> stephanie: it is insulting for the republicans to call her a stooge. someone who is plyiant who would read anything that the white house would put in front of her. >> that's what they do at fox news. >> exactly. that's not what susan rice does. >> stephanie: stacy from

7:00am
that feature the skittle. cobbler eats cranberries and likes the carly simon tune "you're so vain." the whole exercise is mostly ceremonial as both turkeys will be spared and then they're sent to mount vernon where they will retire together. peta not happy with the entire pardon tradition and has asked the president to skip it altogether. newkirk, the president of the animal rights organization sent a letter to the white house saying that turkeys don't need to be pardoned because they didn't do anything wrong. the white house is not expected to comply. and speaking of big turkeys, it seems like papa john's ceo has had a change of heart in the wake of some really bad publicity. john writing in the puffington host -- "huffington post" said he was misunderstood when he said he would raise prices in response to national healthcare reform. he's back-pedaling in an extraordinary way but he says now that all company-owned stores will honor the law and offer their employees access to health insurance. see if he sticks to it.

7:08am
breakfast, summer meals, stuff like that, right? >> yeah. it's programs in the morning for breakfast where kids can come to school, get you nutrition in the morning. obviously free programs during the day. then during the summer where these kids, oftentimes this is the only nutritious meal they're getting is at school, making sure there is a provision for them whether at a food bank or park or church or somewhere where they can get the free meal during the summer as well. >> stephanie: ruth, you know, obviously we just sort of -- we barely survived this whole political season. there's so much demagoguing. and you know, the president obviously was called the food stamp president by newt gingrich and who can remember what other republicans and all of that. you have a personal story about growing one food stamps and how important that is to so many people in this country. >> i do. my mom raised three kids on her own. there was a period of time in my

8:21am
that was something to fact check. because of the lack of politicalization by the left, you know. during that period. the other point is grover norquist. you just heard rand paul. former ceo of ubs. a month or two ago said in the whole history of our country we've raised revenues after wars to pay for them. republicans are telling us we have to cut education, cut programs for the elderly. in order to pay for the deficit which you know, in large part was created by these wars and the tax policies. >> stephanie: tax cuts for the rich. >> caller: democrats, especially the president, has to start framing a better narrative in going after these people who are saying we can't raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires and job creators for the

8:23am
they really think it works. even though it never has. and they think that the reason it failed is because reagan's presidency wasn't long enough. that george w. bush's presidency wasn't long enough. if it had got an guy in there that had been able to continue that and -- >> stephanie: election results. i just don't get it. to me, it borders on treasonist. signed a pledge to a person and not to the constitution. they're going to do this same thing all over again? it is like the election didn't happen. >> well again arguably, he just gives them a lightning wrod where they can get off easy. they believe that stuff too. so it is not a drift for them to sign that because they're going to do it anyways. there are a couple of the waivery ones, arguably mitt romney was one of those people. but decided to sign it as a way to bolster his image. i think that would have been his equivalent of read my lips had he become president. he would have had to raise revenue to pay for the wars
8:24am
which is the patriotic act to do. that's the thing. i think one of the ways you can redress this raising the taxes on the rich idea is that we still have to pay off these two wars. that's why we have to cut entitlements and cut schools and all of that stuff. the reason we're having to cut those ideas or think about cutting them is because we're not bothering to pay for the wars. >> stephanie: richard in massachusetts. hey, richard. >> caller: hi, stephanie. thanks guys. stephanie, john mccain got his nerve to call susan rice not very bright when he graduated third from the bottom at westpoint when he graduated from there. >> stephanie: yes and then picked sarah palin as the brightest person ever to serve the leader of the free world. >> he's turned out to be a bitter old man. who he should be bitter at and mad at is karl rove and george w. bush. don't forget, he won that primary in new hampshire in 2000. they had to pull out all of the stops in south carolina because they knew if he won in south carolina, he would have got the nomination.
8:25am
so they said he fathered a black child. he said that he was in prison for five and a half years. he was not really very stable. that's what did him in. he should be mad at them and nobody else. >> stephanie: yeah. >> believe me, the thing is he's mad at them and everybody else. i think there's plenty of abject rage in john mccain to go around and that's kind of the problem because sometimes it just doesn't find a logical home. >> stephanie: that old picture of him hugging george w. bush. he looks like a rock 'em sock 'em robot. >> i try not to touch you. >> stephanie: he seems very warm very authentic. 29 minutes after the hour. back with more hump days with hal on "the stephanie miller show." i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one
